In your Sanskrit version there are mistakes. i am giving the correct
versions below.

कलाभ्याम् चूडालंकृत-शशिकलाभ्यां निजतप:-
फलाभ्यां भक्तेषु प्रकटित-फलाभ्य़ां भवतु मे ।
शिवाभ्या-मस्तोक-त्रिभुवन-शिवाभ्यां हृदि पुन-
र्भवाभ्या-मानन्द-स्फुर-दनुभवाभ्यां नतिरियम् ॥ १ ॥

गलन्ती शंभो त्वच्चरित-सरित: किल्बिषरजो
दलन्ती धीकुल्यासरणिषु पतन्ती विजयताम् ।
दिशन्ती संसारभ्रमण-परितापोपशमनं
वसन्ती मच्चेतो-ह्रदभुवि शिवानन्दलहरी ॥ २ ॥
